Title Hark A Christmas CollectionAuthor Justin BogPublisher The Author's AdvocateReviewed By Arlena DeanRating Five ReviewHark A Christmas Collection by Justin BogMy ThoughtsWhat a wonderful Christmas collection of six short stories that will keep you turning the pages being of a read that will put the reader in and touch your heart I loved how as one read through each story you will be able to feel the emotions happy sad in between and thought provoking that so many people feel especially during this particular holiday season I was able to feel each story so very well that had a different meaning being presented After reading this collection I will say I plan to make it one of my traditions to read Hark every Christmas holiday Whether it's 'Hark Seducing Santa Bracelet Everyone Wants Me To Snow Globe and The Heralds' I enjoyed all of the stories that 'will touch your mind as well as your heart' And then at the end the author gives the reader a short story 'Poseidon Eyes' which was another good read that I found rather interesting also Definitely this author is a 'master storyteller' that will keep you in awe as you read through his stories Now I will say this may not be one of those sweet readsit is a very realistic oneand yes the true meaning of Christmas that takes place all over the United States Now there will be some 'bitter sweet moments with romance and even a little humor thrown in' This will be definitely a little different in its deepness than the 'normal' Christmas stories I enjoyed reading these uniue anthologies as the reader sees how other people have faced different problems and through it all have found hope in the things that are so important to each of them Would I recommend YES just remember 'that not everyone has a sparkly and super happy Christmas but their stories will touch you whether you celebrate Christmas or not'

In the tradition of It's a Wonderful Life and moralistic tales like A Christmas Carol the stories in HARK shine a light on a different side of this yuletide holidayHARK’s six literary holiday tales are not for young children they are for those contemplating than simple sugarplum sweetnessWithin Hark A Christmas Collection a retired police officer faces another Christmas Eve while bitter recollections haunt his every t. Having read Justin Bog’s previous books I kind of knew not to expect anything from the book while picking it up The author always takes a new road and forges his own path with his uniue style of storytellingThere are six stories in the collection In ‘Hark’ a police officer looks back on how one event changed his life forever The next story ‘Seducing Santa’ tells us about a woman daydreaming about her very own Santa ‘Bracelet’ is about a misplaced gift and the relationship between two sisters ‘Everyone wants me to’ is about a girl who is all but invisible too her parents about her life and that of her family ‘Snow Globe’ touches upon the subject of homosexuality and the society ‘The Heralds’ is about an aging couple and their much anticipated stint as Mr Mrs Claus The above one liners do not give out much about the stories and neither do they capture the true essence of the stories Yet I chose to give one liners as I really want other readers to pick up the book and experience it for themselves without having any prior expectations from it Each story in the book brings forward a different aspect of life and emotion People usually relate joy happiness and hope with the Christmas season But it is also the time when other emotions bubble up to the surface for many people – loss loneliness despair pain regret anger forgiveness It is these emotions that the author has explored through his short stories Some of the stories are light hearted and some even humourous; but all of them have a darker tinge to them if you look closely enough If you are looking for Christmas joy and miracle stories this collection is probably not for youJustin Bog has proved over and over again that he is a master storyteller He artfully takes simple situations and portrays the depth of emotions that a person can feel This is the third book that I have read by this author and he still manages to surprise me and keep me guessing Polished language and smooth flow in his narration are his prime assetsLike with every other book of his that I have read this book too is not for everyone A lot of people might feel disappointed if they pick this one up expecting sweetness and cheer dripping from it I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read ‘something different’ from time to time and has no issues with exploring every aspect of the season and not just the sunshine
